False.

MB - Nice and all, but waaaaaay overkill with a single GPU. You would be paying a premium for four high speed PCIe slots and then only use one of them...

MEM - 16GB is overkill for most all applications, but whatever you go with (8GB or 16gb) just be sure then are 1.5v modules.

GPU - A pair of HD 6970 GPUs in crossfire will outperform the HD 6990 at a lower cost.

SSD - The second generation SandForce controller (SF-2281) will outperform the Marvel in the Intel 510 series SSDs. For example... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

CPU Cooler - If you plan to overclock pick up a CPU cooler. The Hyper 212+ at Amazon is the best deal at the moment.

No, you could do better.
1-2500K. It performs the same as the 2600K in games, and I'm assuming you don't want to just burn your money.
2-2x6970 in crossfire is better AND cheaper than a 6990. Also, the 6990 is LOUD.
Otherwise, you're good.
GJ on the slightly quicker response, sadams :p
